Washington (ANI): Hollywood hunk George Clooney has been roped in to play an assassin in a new film titled A Very Private Gentleman. The big screen adaptation of the Martin Booth novel will be directed by Anton Corbijn.
The story of the film revolves around an assassin who hides out in an idyllic Italian town before carrying out a final assignment. He resists his usual aversion to human interaction, and his friendships and romantic entanglements complicate his mission, reports Variety. The shooting of the film will begin in Italy this fall.
Clooney-starrer comedy film The Men Who Stare at Goats has also found itself a buyer in Overture Films. Overture has grabbed domestic rights to war comedy featuring Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges and helmed by Heslov.
McGregor stars as a journalist who stumbles upon an ex-member (Clooney) of a secret U.S. Army unit that used paranormal tactics.
